New Delhi: 14 Apr '03: Project Tiger has asked all 27 tiger reserves in the country to fit open tourist vehicles with iron grills and sliding windows. The new guidelines follow the recent attack by a tiger on tourists at the Bandhavgarh reserve in Madhya Pradesh
Bearing in mind that this accident happened almost 15 months ago I was wondering if anyone had noticed any of the above safety measures being implemented in Parks around India.
I visited the park where the attack took place and the safety measures had not been installed and I heard nothing what so ever during my 7 day stay about this attack!!

You can read the whole article !!Here

When I think back at the growl the mother tiger gave us as she passed 15 meters in front of us with her cubs!!!! Well it gave me butterflies even then!!

when I was in bhandavgarh,me and an austrian guy visited the small lake,near the main entrance,maybe 5 km s away,we spent all day at this lake and the surrounding area,taking pictures,having a pic-nic,watching sambars and other animals,
the sun started to set,and the sun sets very fast!,so we decided to go back home,of course nobody had a torch,so we had to walk back in
nearly complete darkness,
that was a very strange experience,because when we started walking we made jokes like Oh the tigers are coming,they will get us now,
but then the noises started to become stranger and frightening,
we also wonderd why nobody was walking here exept some crazy
after half hour walking suddenly a jeep stopped,a ranger started to yell at us,jump in,jump the jeep,very dangerous,
then they told us that s its forbidden to walk on that road in the night time...
not only because of the tigers,but some sloth bears already had attacked some locals...

the lesson I learned was : never walk at nigthtime near a tigerpark

Yes, cyberhippie, we can confront tigers only when they're safely caged in a zoo or from the comfort of a jeep safari in a national park !.

No wonder the legendary hunter Jim Corbett is still worshipped by the residents of Kumaon!

I read all of Corbett's "Maneater" books years ago.. I loved them. He always made you feel sorrier for the tigers than the victims when he dscribed the terrible injuries and suffering that drove tigers to attack and eat people.
